Thread: Elbow Tendonitis

  1. #1

    Default Elbow Tendonitis

    New to Ortho coding. Having trouble finding ICD9 for elbow tendonitis. When I look up in ICD9 it leads me to tenosynovitis however I don't believe this is what I need. The other codes I was looking at were those in 726.3_ but not quite certain if this would be appropriate. Any help would be much appreciated!

    The code 727.09 is the correct code.
